UAW members head to D.C.
They'll be hearing from UAW President Bob King on Monday on the start of the four-day conference. The Detroit News says King plans to talk about efforts to persuade non-U.S. automakers to make it easier to unionize their U.S. plants.
In a statement, the UAW said, those at the meeting will:
...discuss the union's legislative and political priorities for the coming year, meet with members of Congress to advocate on behalf of working families and prepare for the union's 2012 electoral campaign.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is expected to speak at the conference.
